I really would hate to see Akainu get this threatment in some ways but at the same time, it would be hilariously catharthic too. But I want a serious fight for Akainu too. Same for Blackbeard too somewhat.
Oda really wants to turn this into Popeye, Tom and Jerry, Ed Edd Eddy and other absurd cartoons and rubberhose type cartoons especially too. The olden golden era that was very creative, fluid, weird, energetic and suhc. Can't blame him for that but I am scared for how this will affect the fights in future.
Yeah, just like in the olden days of OP, where the fights were serious but they were still goofy/had a comedic side to them without it ruining the fights mostly at least and still having the emotional stakes/tone.
